I so hope the biopsy news was good!

And the waiting is so hard, both for that news and for your Dad to be called home. I'm so pleased that you are finding ways to distract yourself
BTW
13. Nonsense! You are beautiful in mind and body and spirit, how could you not be when your soul shines through your every action
